breaking news tonight at ten:a young teen girl is missing in mountain view. i'm pam moore.(steve) and i'm steve aveson..we have her picture just in to the kron4 newsroom. she is 13- year-old myra renteria. she was last seen leaving crittenden middle school today in mountain view. anyone with any information is asked to contact the police immediately. new at ten -- a violent crime rocks a quiet east bay community... a man is shot is his own home during a burglary...(steve) it happened in the oakland hills... and right now the criminals are on the loose. at least three homes were hit. new tonight at ten -- kron4's jr stone is live at the scene... j-r what
platform at the walnut creek station. this is video of the dramatic end ... you can see the man coming down from the ledge. he has been placed on an emergency psychiatric hold. this incident started around 1:30- this afternoon... and disrupted service for hours... the walnut creek bart station was closed, as negotiators talked with the man... this was the scene at the walnut creek bart station as it was happening... bart brought in bus bridges to help people get to where they needed to go. the incident ended around 5:20 -this evening. (steve) another big story we are following tonight:u-c berkeley has decided to cancel a planned speech by controversial conservative ann coulter.(pam) that follows several violent protests in berkeley recently ...including one involving another controversial alt- right figure ---- milo yian- nop-olis.. he was also set to speak on campus -- when violent protests erupted. tonight, ann coulter says, she is still coming to the city --- despite the event being cancelled on
campus.(steve) grant lodes is here with what is shaping up to be a debate over free speech. (grant) yes and this isn't a berkeley or bay area only issue. coulter has a national following...and this story trending on line tonight...she was on fox news tonight talking about it. the university says the decision was made in the interest of public safety. the school also says the organizers of the event...which was set for next thursday... did not give enough advance notice for school administrators to find a safe venue on campus. and we're just days removed from an ugly scene in berkeley. dan mogulof/uc spokesperson: "quite the contrary! we want this event to take place...,we feel comfortable securing that" naweed tahmas/berkeley college repulicans: "the university usually asks advance notice of 4 weeks..."
(grant) they're still trying to figure out a venue in the city of berkeley for that speech...won't be on campus. and one of the issues here...is that u-c berkeley has long been a bastion of free speech...and demonstration...and cancelling the ultra conservative coulter...does theoretically limit her ability to express herself. the other argument is...to what degree is the school responsible for people's safety on its campus.
(steve) happening now. civil air patrol crews are searcing for this small plane that failed to arrive in petaluma... it took off from truckee with two people aboard on monay afternoon. tonight crews say radar analysis and cellphone forensics have helped narrow the search...to a rugged area northwest of truckee. the plane has an emergency locator transmitter...but so far no signal from that transmitter. (pam) fresno police are describing the man accused of gunning down three white men ... as a 'hate- filled racist'.... and they add, kori muhammad set out this past week, to 'kill as many people as possible.' they say muhammad is not only un-repentent-- he has been laughing about what he did..
police say, muhammad began his killing spree when he gunned down a security guard at a motel last week.. and when he realized he was a wanted man... he set out to systematically kill as many white people as he could... these are newly released pictures of the three men who were shot just yesterday... mark gassett was shot as he walked away from catholic charities ... with a bag of groceries.. zack randalls - the father of a three- year- old girl - had just started working for p-g-&e... he was on his first ride-along with a crew. and david jackson was 58-years -old... living in fresno.... police say, he was chosen in part, because he was 'older and heavier.' police say, muhammed has talked to them, detailing what he did... often showing only amusement. the mother of mark gassett spoke earlier today saying she is heartbroken.... rosie wagner - mother of victim mark gassetthe had a heart of gold. he had two beautiful little boys. he was a good-hearted person.chief jerry dyer / fresno police: kori muhammad is a very callused individual. when he was taking our police officers
and detectives around to various locations last night and yesterday, as he spoke about the shootings and shooting individuals, he did so in a very callus manner, and in fact laughed multiple times as he described what transpired.(pam) there have been memorials and vigils for the victims... including this one, hosted by an interfaith group last night. police say, when they arrested muhammad.... he was surrounded by voodoo amulets ... meant to ward off evil. he told police he 'respected' them... and did not want to force them to shoot him. (steve) now the nba playoffs...
the warriors are facing the portland trailblazers at home tonight.. it's game two of a seven game series... (pam) the warriors already up one- game to none ... and golden state fans are feeling good. even though star player kevin durant is out.. due to injury. kron 4's lydia pantazes is live at oracle arena tonight. it's quiet out here, that's because all the fans are inside the oracle arena cheering on their team.
(pkg)this is what it's all about for these fans...getting to meet and maybe even get a fist bump from their favorite warrior..."did he sign your jersey? yeah, he did. you excited? yeah it's cool! but even this kid will tell you... that the most important part of tonight's game is..."trying to get a dub, trying to get a win!"some fans even wearing good luck charms "hopefully it brings us luck."hoping to give the warriors an edge..."my dads jacket so, this is my dads jacket, he passed away so i thought i'd bring him with us to the game, to have his presence here, even though he's got the best seat in the house upstairs." and while not everyone here is a warriors fan....."you're not a warriors fan? no."this kid is a clippers fan...something his little brother finds pretty funny since he doesn't expect his brothers team to make it to the next round."is that
funny to you? are you a warriors fan? yeah. and he's not a warriors fan, no. my dad is a warriors fan."but there is one thing on fans minds.... the fact that kevin durant didn't play."i think we can handle the portland trailblazers but if it was anybody else he'd be playing." (steve) kron4 sports reporter mark carpenter will have the highlights live from oracle arena tonight at 10:45. (pam) coming up - former n-f-l star aaron hernandez ... found hanged in his cell.. tonight -- why his death could mean his conviction record will be wiped clean. (steve) then a video all
marijuana -- it's called 4-20. every year there is a huge event in san francisco ... that leaves behind a huge mess. this is the first year recrational pot is legal in califonria...despite that --- smoking mairjuana in public is still ánotá allowed.(steve) that hasn't stopped people in the past... kron4's justine waldman shows us how san francisco is planning to try and mellow the annual 420 party in golden gate park.
so why you doing it now?nat sot two shotat oaksterdam university in oakland.. where people get trained about the cannabis industry we got an explaination on what prop 64 does allow people do.sot you can posses up to one ounce of cannibals you can grow up to 6 cannabis plants and you can receive that cannabis as a gift as long as it is under one ounce users still need a marijuana card to make purchases at dispensaries.the state is still figuring out how to regulate the sale of recreational marijuana which will likely take up the rest of the year.sot while you could get a friend to share up to one ounce with you are still a law obidding citizen as long as you don't fire it up outside.as for 4/20 past celebrations have cost the city more than a hundred thousand dollars each year. .merchants raised money for port-to-potties to try and keep it a little more mellow
we've asking the city to put porter potties out and put more garbage cans out. they complain about the mass that's made it 420 but they did nothing to alleviate it and now they're finally doing it which is a good thing. (steve) the city says it plans to start shutting the 4/20 party down at 6 tomorrow night... (pam) new at 10.. doctors have concluded that a woman charged with the death of an alameda county sherrif's explorer ... is not mentally competent to stand trial at this time. court appointed doctors found ... that 24-year-old laura rodgers... is unable to understand the criminal proceedings against her and assist in her defense. court officals will decide on may fifth whether rodgers will receive a jury trail... or be transferred to a mental facility. if rodgers is sent to a mental facility, she will receive treatment so that she could possibly stand trial in the future. rodgers and her boyfriend, 23-year-old curtys taylor .. are charged in connection with the death of karla ramirez. her body was
found in a creek at the arroyo vieho recreation center in oakland on november third. ramirez was a volunteer with the sheriff's explorer program... that organizations' participants often go on to become law enforcement officers. (steve) tonight crews have demolished a half moon bay home that was dangerously close to falling onto a beach. fortunately, the building was vacant.... the bluffs underneath the house had been eroded away by months of wet weather. kron 4's charles clifford gives us an up close look. this past winter the powerfull storms we saw actually eroded the bluffs here in halfmoon bay back 20 or 30 feet in some places. that actually undercut the foundation of what was a small house sitting here on the bluffs and here was concern that the house might fall onto the beach so today they are demolishing this building.this is video of the house wednesday morning from our helicopter partnership with abc 7. it was torn down just moments after this video was taken. the house, which is
about 690 square feet, is actually owned by california state parks. it was built in the 1940's and was most recently used as employee housing but had been vacant for quite some time. when the bluff erosion was discovered, state parks decided to tear it down.sotthe loss of this house is just the latest casualty of california's record breaking wet weather this past winter. just to the north in pacifica, erosion along the coast badly damaged this beach access, forced the demolition of an apartment complex and badly eroded this popular trail. back in half moon bay, the house may be gone but the foundation is still in place and the plan is to keep it that way.sot
richmond san rafael broidge ... a nice forecast ahead.(steve) for all the weather details.. let's check chief meterologist brittney shipp.. .a system will bring light precipitation across the northern portion of the region from this evening into tonight. dry conditions return by tomorrow along with a warming trend into friday as high pressure builds aloft. dry weather looks to persist into the upcoming weekend with temperatures near seasonal averages.

(steve ) and next...former n-f-l star aaron hernandez ... found hanged in his cell.. tonight -- we look into the possibility of his conviction record being wiped clean... and what that could mean for his family.
murderer and former nfl star aaron hernandez was found hanged in his massachusetts prison cell today. investigators say he had "attempted to block his door from the inside by jamming the door with various items" but tonight -- the former pro athlete's family wants an investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death. reporter andy rose has the latest. ((((nats: "guilty of murder in the first degree")))) convicted murderer and former professional football player aaron hernandez was found hanged in his jail cell wednesday morning.the apparent suicide comes just days after hernandez was aqcuitted in a double murder case.but he was already serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of semi-pro football player, odin lloyd.hernandez, was once a rising star with the new england patriots.but two murder trials and one conviction later, he was instead going to spend the rest of his life in prison.
hernandez was in the process of appealing his conviction when he died. now because of state law, his conviction could be vacated.the lawyer representing the families in the second murder case, say they still plan on filing a civil suit. william kennedy/ attorney for furtado and de abreu: "they were good people that deserved to live and that was robbed from them...and that's what this case was about when we first brought it, when mr. hernandez was with us...and we intend to proceed on it."meanwhile, hernandez' family wants more answers surrounding his death, and have asked their attorney to investigate. robert proctor/attorney: "he was an eternal optimist. it is very hard for me to accept that he committed suicide but we are keeping an open mind.... reporter: you don't believe he was suicidal?robert proctor/attorney: not the aaron i know."i'm andy rose, reporting. (pam) new tonight at ten: we look deeper into whether the conviction of aaron hernandez.. could be vacated because of his death... in massachusetts,
when a defendant dies after a conviction, but ábeforeá the appeal is heard.... that could happen. the dean of the massachusetts school of law says, if hernandez has a clean record.... it is possible the patriots might owe his estate a signing bonus .... and the n-f-l could even owe his estate a pension.. there is legal precedent to all this -- back in 2003, the conviction of a child molester and roman catholic priest was vacated.... after he was murdered in prison... that happened at the same prison where hernandez apparently killed himself.

who live here say they are still on edge.stephen mark harris/bay park retirement resident: there is a certain level of fear involved and that is understandable. everyone involved including the construction crew are in a complete tizzy. they see the problem but have no idea how to follow through with it. construction crews were out here for most of the morning digging up some of the soil to test it.so that crews can figure out what it require to stabilize this land so they can ultimately rebuild the parking lot and the utilities that were here.(hermela aregawi)some facilities in the backpart of the community here have been closed as a precaution.but residents tell me they're afraid it's only a matter of time before they're forced out of their homes as a precaution.reporting in pinole, hermela aregawi, kron 4 news.
(steve) new tonight at ten: an alarming accusation in the aftermath of the oroville dam crisis.(pam) the claim: those 200-thousand people who had to abruptly evacuate ... never should have been in danger in the first place. grant lodes is back with the new details and why congress could be getting involved. (grant) six california members of the house of represetatives want safety standards reviewed at big dams in the u-s. additionally...a butte county supervisor is calling out the people who operate the oroville dam...calling it poorly run. supervisor bill connolly says those officials should never have let the lake get that high. in fact...managers at the nation's tallest dam... got an uncommon exemption from the army corps of engineers... to
bypass a rule that would have required them to release huge amounts of water from the rapidly filling dam. when both spillways failed...there was concern a wall of water could decimate towns downstream. that did not happen...but now lawmakers are trying to improve dam safety here in california and throughout the country.

as people thought, 'hey, we're going to get tax cuts. we're going to get tax repatriation. we're going to get a spending bill up to trillions of dollars. we're going to get corporate taxes cut from thirty five percent maybe down to eighteen to twenty-two to twenty-three percent. now it appears that all that's on the back burner; there's a new survey that came out from merrill lynch. global fund managers expectations are waning. and you saw the stock market up five percent in the first three months and since then, it's gone nowhere fast so there's no expectation of global inflation. people are starting to slide on their expectations for reform as far as corporate profits improving tied towards tax reform. . . so the defeat of the gop health care bill have made investors a lot more skeptical of any sort of trump policy follow through."fletcher: "alright this final story here is the one i've been been looking forward to because every time i go to ikea with he wife, my favorite stop is to stop in the food area there. i get my swedish meat balls and you're telling my i may be able to get that without having to go to ikea." black: "crazy, right? so ikea's floating the idea of coming up with a stand-alone restaurant or cafe-type business. but the furniture giant has yet to release any
details in these independent eateries. but thirty percent of customer head to ikea, get this, just for food. just for food. they don't even go to buy furniture or even to look at furniture. thirty percent go in just for this, the swedish meat balls and such like that. the furniture giant, ikea, sells over a billion meat balls every year. they've recently come out with some chicken and veggie meat balls to keep up with the demands of the times, so to speak. so you don't have to go to ikea to get sofas anymore. now you can go to ikea to feed up and fill up on meat balls." fletcher: "alright, good advice rob. thank you as always. and if you want your questions answered, send them to rob. reach out to him. he's easily accessible on facebook. kron4. rob black."
